Flames of War Blog releases 28mm paper terrain containers.

From their announcement:

I’ve done some basic containers, some retro soft drink containers, so I figured I may as well throw together some Sci-Fi containers, featuring evil corporations from some great films and a TV show! The great thing is that in reality they will all work together so as well as being available as individual sets, I’m gonna make them available as one complete 28mm Shipping Container Set.

  • Absolutionis

    They’re selling a papercraft box featuring copyrighted symbols… for money…

  • Ken

    There were free downloads in a TGN link a few weeks back. I don’t understand this one.

  • keltheos

    I’m sure someone will rat them out and they’ll have to pull it down/offer it for free.

    Besides, without Weyland-Yutani it’s a non-starter for me.

  • lordofexcess

    Ya the “Flames of War” blog makes it sound like they are affiliated with Battlefront … are they? I’d like to see a plastic set like that for sale (though I agree with the copyrighted materials comment … wtf are they thinking) … paper … meh … I’ll pass.

  • blackfang

    Here are the previous (FREE) ones http://www.tabletopgamingnews.com/2011/09/10/50344/

    Previous comment withdrawn, if they are free that is cool … thanks be to the artistic awesomeness of the person who created them.

    • antenociti

      Just to clarify this issue:

      The 10 free sets are “ours” (Antenociti’s Workshop), although the container design itself was done by the DevilTeam. We’re adding another couple of designs this weekend also.

      http://www.antenocitisworkshop.com/news/2011/09/free-papercard-craft-containers/

      We have no affiliation with the “Flames of War Blog”, nor do we charge for the paper containers we have at the above link.

    • Absolutionis

      These listed boxes are not free. Flames of War Blog is trying to make money off this.

  • Tommygun

    Those are two different sets from different people.

  • FOW_fan

    WOW.

    My previous containers didn’t get any comments, but now I seem to have hit a nerve for some reason. I’m not sure why, but I’ll try and address a few of the comments.

    Firstly, I have no affiliation with Battlefront. My website started out as a Blogger hosted blog titled ‘flames-of-war’ as that was what I was playing at the time. When I moved onto a paid hosted website I decided to carry the name over, but have always kept the design to look radically different from Battlefront so as not to confuse anyone.

    It’s interesting to see that the general consensus seems to the that it’s ok to offer this type of terrain for free, but not to make money from it.

    I make paper terrain that interests me, it’s part of my hobby. I offer it up for sale at a minimal price to give it value, not to make money. Sure I do make a few bucks, not enough to cover hosting costs and time, but a little every now and then that I can put towards future wargaming purchases.

    If the real issue is one of copyright, then possibly both Antenociti and myself should take our containers down. If it’s because I’m charging, then I could easily offer them as a free option when purchasing my original container set, and still ‘make money’… 😉
